County musician J.D. Shleburne wrote a song for the Kentucky Wildcats as they head down to Dallas, Texas to play the Wisconsin Badgers in the Final Four. Shelburne used the song “If you’re gonna play in Texas” by the band Alabama and put his own spin on it.Instead of a fiddle though, you have to play with Lee in the game.
The song references the play of freshman big man Marcus Lee who stepped up big against Michigan Sunday. Lee was given minutes after Willie Cauley-Stein injured his ankle against the Louisville Cardinals Friday night.
Big Blue Nation has written a lot of songs for their beloved basketball teams, this is one of the better ones.
